Next up for the XT-100 project: data fields. For displaying and setting variables. What I'm slowly working towards here is a bizarre hybrid of Teletext and React-flavored HTML5 shenanigans.

What if web development had started 15-20 years sooner and we used BASIC instead of Javascript? That's kinda what I'm going for. And if this sounds a lot like Hypercard … well, that's another big influence.

The biggest unknown here is going to be how to write a BASIC parser/evaluator in Lua, but that's more just a distaste for writing parsers in the first place (it's something I've never really mastered, despite having plenty of time and experiences to learn).
